Philosophy of Birth
Doulas, in short, empower you to give birth your way. Giving birth is the most personal journey you’ll ever go on. But the processes, guidelines and regulations of the NHS can make what’s supposed to be the most wonderful experience in a woman’s life quite the opposite. This is the ethos on which M. Thorpe Doula was born and the conviction behind everything I do. My vision is to give you the birth experience you wish for, not the one you are allocated by the system. I work with you and the NHS to make your childbirth and postnatal experience personal to you.
I am a former midwife turned doula (recognised by Doula UK), antenatal educator and aromatherapy in childbearing practitioner, hypnobirthing teacher as well as mother to two children. I work across Nottingham and Derby but can travel further if required.
